I am planning on building a type XXIII in 1/32 scale. Does anyone think they would be interested in this as a product. I know there are a ton of vacformed 32nd parallel models out there. I am planning on doing these in epoxy. A big hurdle I have is that in 1/32 You can only use a 3 inch tube. If I were to bump it up to 1/30, We could squeeze a 3.5 into the hull. Does the odd scale turn people off sometimes? The hulls I sell are the basic shapes without scribing or detail but I will also have the appendages and some cast detail parts. I am also seriously considering a set of endcaps, tube and cradle be included with the hull. The 32nd parallel model is an awesome regatta and traveling boat. The turning radius is also very nice. Give me your opinions. I would also be willing to sell the tooling to someone who wants to lay them up themself
